Re: “Savage Love: Dan to Canadian politician: Blow me. Really.

I hope someday we get past this debate about whether sexual orientation is a choice. It's a red herring, because it really doesn't matter. Whether you're born with it or choose it, it's still nobody's business. Even if it is a choice it would be YOUR choice, and how is that my concern? Although I believe that one is "born that way" I don't like that argument. It often feels like saying they can't help it, which implies they would if they could, which implies it's a negative way to be.

"She slept with him by accident."

That's hilarious.

Wow, sorry I read that. Didn't realize the ending would be given away.

"Or rather, the disaster she's *told* she can't stop—a critical distinction the script largely ignores." Largely ignores??? The whole story is about whether or not you can change fate.

"Bee 2 is a fascinating creation who speaks uncomfortable truths—she could sustain an evening-length solo piece of her own." I was thinking the same thing.

"People, if you're going to cheat on your partner, please use protection. It's quite literally the least you can do."

Yes, but the problem is that cheaters are inherently selfish. So this is like saying "If you're going to be selfish, please don't be selfish." If they were considerate people they wouldn't be cheating in the first place, right?
